    Bookmarker's Notes

    The author's summary to the first part of this series, Chyetirye (Четыре), is what got me reading this, so I'm going to paste it below, but really, the entire series is fantastic and deserves the rec, so.

    ---
    Even the strongest personalities, when subjected to great physical, emotional, and sexual abuses, can splinter, or dissociate.

    Bucky Barnes lives a nightmare after falling from a train and being recovered by Hydra. His mind deals with the trauma by splintering into the soldier, the prisoner, the patriot, and the assassin.

    Years later, they team up to save Steve Rogers.

    Summary

    Then Bucky licks his lips, tip of his tongue just grazing the sensitive skin of Steve’s ear and Steve moans. Nothing close to the surge of lust behind his ribs, but a tiny, breathy sound all the same. Bucky doesn’t react—he must not have heard. Though a minute later he curls his fingers and extends them again, moving just slow enough for it to be a caress.

    Just tip your head into his touch. He’ll take the lead and trace the folds of your ear with his tongue until you can’t keep quiet any more. Then he’ll smother your desperate little noises with his mouth, fingers twisting in your hair. Kissing deeply, tongues reaching to declare your filthy intentions. Find his knee with your hand and slide wolfishly up his thigh until you reach the bulge behind his fly. Palm him through his trousers until he’s panting in your mouth, until he’s pressing his forehead to yours, hips bucking, and you can see his dark eyes, glinting in the screen’s flickering light, pleading—

    Steve jolts back to the present. The credits are rolling and Bucky is reading them as well. The screen blacks and two fluorescent lights buzz to life. Bucky loosens his hand from Steve’s head, welcoming the world back in.

    Summary

    This is what Bucky thinks he remembers. Writing a letter to Steve in the trenches, muddy footprints, impressions of army boots on the ground. So cold his fingers ache. He’s writing the letter but it doesn’t make sense. He’s writing the letter but he wants to go home. It’ll make sense then, he thinks—it’ll make sense when they both come home.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Bucky, Sam, and Steve remember the days of the Bucky's return very differently. Every single story in this series is fantastic, though I'm perhaps most in love with the fantastic "Let Your Backbone Flip" (part two of the series), which, just, SAM. I love everyone in this story, but Sam is a breakout character to me. Also sassy Steve and really really fucking traumatised (WHAT DID YOU EXPECT) Bucky Barnes, and lots and lots of fantastic characterisation and ladksjfsaldj read the summaries (AND THEN THE STORIES), they'll do a much better job at explaining why this is ace than I ever could.

    I love that hansbekhart has included the wider implications of the collapse of as large an organisation as S.H.I.E.L.D. -- benefit payments and insurance coverage for former employees is one of the things that get covered, the difficulty of untangling the mess and the media witchhunt are just a few examples. Go, read, I'm making a hash of selling this story, you could be reading the stories instead of my rambling comment. GO.
